Is there any data on the device that you would like to try and secure.
I can only suggest that if the item was purchased new that you return it, even if you did manage to use the device once would you trust it to back up important data to.
Can you tell us the brand name of the device and where you obtained it so that we can do some research.

Some test tools for you to try http://www.rmprepusb...usb-flash-drive
If the ebay seller looks legit you should have no problem getting a refund but there are unscrupulous people out there selling devices that are not as advertised http://sosfakeflash....uide-made-easy/ and an ebay example http://www.ebay.co.u...03022161/g.html

I have tried your suggestions but nothing seems to work so have contacted the seller and arranged to return it.
Thank you for trying to help.
